Alexander The Great

by FOX, ROBIN LANE

Condition: Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. Some slight tears in dustjacket


The Dial Press, New York: 1973. Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. Some slight tears in dustjacket. This study of Alexander is the fullest ever attempted. Fox makes use of Persian and Indian evidence combined with the widely scattered remains of the original Greek histories in a search which sets his hero against the beliefs and skills of his own age. Includes an Index. ISBN: 0803709455.

Tough, resolute, fearless, Alexander was a born warrior and ruler of passionate ambition who understood the intense adventure of conquest and of the unknown. When he died in 323 BC aged thirty-two, his vast empire comprised more than two million square miles, spanning from Greece to India. His achievements were unparalleled - he had excelled as leader to his men, founded eighteen new cities and stamped the face of Greek culture on the ancient East. The myth he created is as potent today as it was in the ancient world. Robin Lane Fox's superb account searches through the mass of conflicting evidence and legend to focus on Alexander as a man of his own time. Combining historical scholarship and acute psychological insight, it brings this colossal figure vividly to life.
